Canon Pixma Pro 100 wrong colors


I am having issues with the print colors being wrong. I have tried many options that change or color matching that canon offers. The nozzles are clean and I am using the right printer ink as well. Pictures are all faded and the wrong color. By chance one picture will print appropriately, which it makes it frustrating. I paid a lot of money for this printer to not work and there is zero support help through canon or a person to talk to about this. I have changed the printer paper type, color matching, checked the nozzles for anything being wrong and it will not print the correct colors. The colors print off red or no red colors, and then will also print a faded off green color.... All printer ink has been changed and there are none in Low supply. 

Please help...

Please compare your printout with the example below.

Does your nozzle check print correctly?

It is important to know what software you are using? It is also important to know how you are telling the Pro-100 to print. What OS your computer has. Keep in mind it just might be doing exactly what you are telling it to.

It could be as simple as your monitor is set too bright and you judge your settings from that. I would adjust the contrast/brightness and very importantly the grayscale of your monitor. Windows had a tool on the desktop "Display Settings" where you can do just that. Mac probably has it also. Mac's can pose a particular problem with correct OS per print driver. You need to ask a true Mac person about that.
